Advances in technology enable ever better quality assurance in embedded software development. As our customer, you are justified in expecting us to implement all the latest developments – and ideally, help shape them in the first place. Which is why we cooperate closely with selected partners in industry and academic research.
MathWorks, Inc. is the leading developer and provider of software for technical and scientific calculations. The products MATLAB®, Simulink®, and Stateflow® offer engineers a comprehensive environment for developing and simulating embedded software. We have been a MathWorks Product Partner since 2013 with the MES Test Manager® (MTest), our ISO 26262 test framework for Simulink® and Embedded Coder®.
dSPACE is a leading manufacturer of engineering tools for developing and testing mechatronic control systems. MES develops model checks for MISRA, TargetLink, and AUTOSAR in cooperation with dSPACE. We have been a TargetLink Strategic Partner of dSPACE since June 2010 and, via the tools MES Model Examiner® (MXAM), MES Test Manager® (MTest), and MES M-XRAY® (MXRAY), we provide core components for implementing the TargetLink Reference Workflow.
MES and SAE International are collaborating on the training workshops offered as part of the MES Academy. In 2017, SAE International included the training workshop “Model-based Development of Embedded Software in Compliance with ISO 26262 – Challenges and Effective Solutions” in its Functional Safety Training catalog. MES can now award an “SAE Certificate of Competency” to participants who successfully pass an evaluation exercise at the end of the training workshop.
AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture), the worldwide development partnership, was founded in mid-2003 with the goal of collectively developing and implementing a standardized electric/electronic architecture concept. MES has been involved with the conception and development of the new AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform since 2014.
MES has been a member of the international competence network for safety in embedded systems in transportation systems since 2015. SafeTRANS connects a group of renowned companies and scientific institutions, and aims to facilitate knowledge transfer between science and industry in the field of embedded systems for transportation systems as well as increase safety in this field via the most modern technology and optimized processes.
Technische Universität Berlin
In line with their motto “We’ve got the brains for the future”, the Technische Universität (TU) Berlin stands for future-oriented research and teaching. MES cooperates with multiple disciplines at the TU Berlin, including flight mechanics, flight control and aeroelasticity; quality science; and software and embedded systems engineering, in developing meta-models and creating tool adapters. MES has been carrying out projects with various TU Berlin research areas since 2009.
